The current extension of the deeply penetrating IP coverage is strongly endorsed, and any
resulting deep chargeability highs similar in form to that at Romero would constitute
compelling drill targets. The anomaly north-northeast of Hondo Valle could be either drill
tested immediately or following confirmation with a line of deep IP. The IP results may also
assist with definition of the subsurface extent of the suspected flow-dome complex, which is
anticipated to be resistive.
(COMPELLING DRILL TARGETS, SILLITOE'S WORDS NOT MINE.<G> HOPE THEY FIND SOME.
Reappraisal of the GoldQuest drainage geochemical results, which led to the original
discovery of Las Tres Palmas, would be a worthwhile exercise, with a view to identifying
subtle zinc, copper and/or gold anomalies that might warrant follow-up using more detailed
drainage as well as soil geochemistry. Anomalies might be subtle because of limited
exposure of formerly blind Romero-type systems.
It might be asked if the calcite veinlets in the chloritised tuffs above Romero give rise to any
sort of leakage anomaly. For example, the veinlets might contain trace amounts of zinc or
some other element (e.g. manganese) that could be determined geochemically in surface (continues on next page)
